No need to fear, Apple TV+ and the team that brought you the Friday the 13th game are here!
Damn, that was a busy week - but a fun one! On Monday we posted a new episode of The Morning Brew, on Tuesday we debuted a brand new podcast called Say Hello to Fun Time and brought in some new listeners along with it. As it stands, SHTFT had the highest amount of single-day listeners of any podcast we've ever done - so congrats to Logan and Adam and thank you all for tuning in! I hope you're excited for their next episode when it drops probably sometime in May and I also hope you check our some of our other offerings while you're at it!
One of my biggest accomplishments this week was realizing that Odesli now hosts podcast links as well. So rather than attempting to link somebody to all the different ways they can listen, I can now simply give them one single link - pods.link/rsmrymedia. From there you'll see Apple Podcasts, Spotify, SoundCloud, etc. Wherever you probably listen to podcasts, it's there. And I drew up a new logo for it as well that I think is much more clean and modern looking. So a successful week on the podcast front!
Then on Wednesday I dropped the first video in our At Home video series featuring Jared Kennedy performing his song "Alaska" - thank you again, Jared, for doing that. We'll have more as I reach out to more people and get more videos recorded. Nothing is lined up just yet but I've got some feelers out there.
Then on Thursday Kevin did his annual NFL mock draft and today, Friday, here I am typing this.
On Monday we saw the debut of The Midnight Gospel on Netflix and on Tuesday we saw the three-episode improv comedy collection from Middleditch & Schwartz hit the device as well. Both deserve a watch even if the former is quite different than what I expected it to be. But not in a bad way! I don't think.
Anyways, let's take a look at what's out there today:
Elison 404 & 404 Guild - Pebbledash (Album)

As for what I'd recommend this week - definitely the new single from The 1975 because it's the poppiest little bopper I've heard all year but also the new singles from James Blake and Earl Sweatshirt because they're also fantastic. I plan on watching the Beastie Boys documentary tonight with my wife because it lands on her "watch with me" list so I gotta wait. But I assume that's going to be great so I'm excited to check that out. And then, of course, Predator: Hunting Grounds which I plan on picking up momentarily and then streaming this afternoon if all goes according to plan.
So follow us on Twitch and we'll see you there! And listen tour record The Morning Brew live on Sunday morning there as well!
Have a safe weekend, everybody!
